We Want to Know: What are Your Favorite Workout Songs?



We need your input, Be Wellers! As some of you know, every Friday, we wipe our Spotify Ultimate Workout Playlist clean and load it up with a bunch of new songs that will get you through your sweat session with a smile on your face. Each week, we choose a different theme—from classic rock to rap you can run to and more—and this week, we want it to be all about you guys: Think of it as the Be Well Philly readers’ picks edition.

Now, we’ve just got one question for you: What are your absolute favorite, can’t-live-without workout songs? Tell us in the comments section below and we’ll be sure to add them to this week’s playlist. (And don’t worry, my favorite workout song has been Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter” for the past 10 years straight, so let’s just say, this is a judgment-free zone.) We can’t wait to see your picks, guys!
